    Would you have a problem if it was a guy calling you mate in a shop?
    I don't think there's anything wrong with it.
    I get called love, duck, darling and sweetheart in shops, and it doesn't bother me.

    It's a Nottingham thing
    New one to add to the list, I got called chick today. Although that was a customer I was serving, so it's not really the same.

    Yeah :awesome: I love how nobody else in the country understands what 'Duck', 'mardy' or 'Cob' means. Apparently the Northerners call Cobs 'Barmcakes' (what the hell?) and the Southerners call them 'Rolls'. They're all just crazy :yes:

    And the rest of the country needs 'mardy', saying 'sulking' just doesn't quite replace it.

    Nottingham (and it's people) is great

    Not talking about girls who know you, but I have to say I would think a girl who did know me was a bit of a geezerbird if she said it a lot.But girls who don't know you I think is a bit maybe rude? chavvy?

    I was in a sports shop yesterday and I asked a girl assistant for some trainers in a certain size and she comes back and says 'here you go mate', and I just laughed at her and walked out. I think 'sir' is how you address customers or maybe not in a sports shop but I really think saying 'mate' shows a bit of disrespect.Thoughts?
    you sound like a pretentious toff, pretty naive, led a sheltered life much?

    I'm from the south, and I've never heard anyone called a "roll"? O.o

    Heard "duck" though.

    Oh, no no, I'd gone off topic a bit there ...

    You know those round bread roll... things? You can put chips in them, make sandwiches from them ... (the rest of the country seems to call them either Baps, Rolls or Barmcakes [:awesome:]) well we call them Cobs, nobody ever seems to understand what we mean. I didn't mean that we sometimes call other people 'Cob'
